Iranian Girl Shot
As the rebellion in Iran continues, one girl has become the face of the struggle for pro-democracy citizens. Neda, the name of the young girl shot and killed by a sniper bullet, is the latest tragedy caused by the Iranian elections. The shocking video, taken by her father directly after she was shot, has since become popularized via sites like Facebook and Twitter and can now be seen in different media outlets throughout the world.
It’s unfortunate to see these types of causalities anywhere and the fact that they continue in this day and age is extremely saddening. To have a life taken at such a young age for a rightful cause is not something that should ever happen.
The video is extremely graphic so we decided not to host it on this website but we have provided you the link if you’re interested: Iranian protester shot and killed.
Neda, a name that stands for “voice” in Farsi, will be remembered as a hero in the eyes of her family, her country and the world.
